FO: Watermelon Socks

Posted on March 21, 2008 by knittingpatterns4you | 0 Comments

I'm on a finishing kick over here! (not that you'd know it from my Ravelry page)

Last night I finished the second watermelon sock and I LOVE THEM! They're ridiculous and bright and happy, and therefore perfect socks.

The fit is a little off on these, I probably should have short rowed more on the heel to make it narrower and taller, and these do not have a gusset so they are quite tight across the heel. No matter though, I will certainly wear them! In fact, I'm wearing them to work today!

The bind off I'm also unsure of - I did a sewn bind off and while it looks great on and is stretchy enough, it looks strang OFF the foot and is kind of bothering me.

Project specs:
Pattern: Toe up socks, 60 sts around with short row heels
Yarn: Yarntini Strawberry Daquiri and Koigu P539 for heels
Needles: US size 1
Started: October 2, 2008
Finished: March 21, 2008 (actual knitting time: 10 days)

Up next in socks:

Vesper Sock yarn in Neopolitan! I'm starting these today!
